Children's Ministry

The Children's Ministry of Avon United Methodist Church reaches God's littlest disciples. The ministry exists to reach children for the Lord, equip families to grow in Christ together and have fun doing it. We meet Sunday mornings during both services. Children participate in songs, videos, object lessons, classroom learning and other methods to keep them interested in learning. Periodically there are other children's events including an Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, Fall Fun Night, and a Christmas Event.  


Held Sunday mornings during indoor worship services, Kid's Church is a place for kids to learn about God in a relevant and fun way. Little ones learn about God in simple ways with crafts and age-appropriate, preschool lessons. Older kids, in Kindergarten to fifth grade, are encouraged to join us for fun of their own. Each week kids receive lessons from both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, and they have fun learning them.
Note: First Sundays are "Family Sundays" at Avon UMC. Kids age 5 and older worship with their parents, only Nursery and Preschool classes meet

4.5.6 Ministry

We are launching a new ministry (Oct 2021), called 4.5.6. Meeting Sunday mornings at 10:30 in the barn,

4.5.6 is for kids in grades 4, 5 and 6. We will follow curriculum similar to what the kids have used in Kid's

Church, but kick it up a notch to address the questions kids have as they transition to Youth Ministry. If you

have kids who feel "stuck in the middle," too old for the little kids' classes and too young for Youth Group,

4.5.6 is a great place for them to keep learning to love and follow Jesus.

(4.5.6. does not meet on Family Sundays/First Sundays).


Easter is kind of a big deal around here, and we will have Easter fun for families every year! From our annual Easter Egg Hunt and Palm Sunday procession to fun activities that focus on what Easter means to us as followers of the risen Jesus.

Summer Programs

Vacation Bible School and Family Faith Nights are some of the programs we have led for kids and families in the summer! Want to see what it's all about? Click this link (Family Faith Nights Video) for a quick video of our 2021 program, "I Wonder...," a VBS-style event which encouraged the whole family to experience fun and learning together! Families moved through songs and activities, with parents and older kids helping the younger members of the family, and we laughed, learned, sang and played together for three awesome evenings!


Sunday, October 24, 3-5:30pm

Trunk or Treat is a fun time for everyone! Whether you Host a Trunk or simply bring the kids for

some costumed candy collection, seeing the fancy trunks will put a smile on your fall face for sure!

We had a blast at our 2021 Event, even though the rain forced us inside. Check out this video to see

the smiles, and start planning your 2022 trunk now!

Christmas FAMILY Event

Each year, we encourage the Christmas spirit in our families with a special event aimed at our littlest angels. Good food, fun crafts and some "special  guest appearances" promise something for all ages. Our 2021 theme is Letters to Santa, and kids will have the opportunity to write a letter to the Jolly ol' Elf himself, along with snacks games and more! Find registration links here, and we will see you in the Barn on December 11th!
